Obama administration officials have just announced that they will be heading to Detroit to discuss the city’s bankruptcy and how they can support and assist the city’s revitalization to restore it to a new modern-day Renaissance City. They are set to travel to Detroit on Sept. 27 to meet with community leaders, nonprofit executives and elected officials. The meeting will include key players in the issue: Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, Mayor Dave Bing, emergency manager Kevyn Orr as well as Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.
“We’re going to continue to support the efforts under way in Detroit and ensure the federal government is an active partner in supporting the revitalization of the city,” Sperling said. “This effort is about lifting up Detroit and committing to a shared, long-term investment that will enable the businesses and residents in Detroit to expand opportunity and renew this world-class city.” -Gene Sperling, director of President Barack Obama’s National Economic Council, source, Detroit Free Press
